Little China Necklace


When I went shopping for beads for this necklace I came across these red and black hand painted, gorgeous beads (I don't think the photos do them justice!). They are all different but part of the same concept. And, understandably, I was immediately captivated by their beauty. And I just had to have them.

It is interesting that at the same minute I laid eyes on them I knew what the necklace would look like. I crocheted a lovely burgundy rose as the focal point of it, beaded the little works of art and crocheted the ties.

As the black strokes reminded me of calligraphy (as well as the combination of red and black) - hence China - I named it 'Little China Necklace' and think that the name suits it perfectly.

Red leaves to complete the looks of it.
Just lovely.
